Analyzed damages based on misappropriation of trade secrets

CRA worked on behalf of one of the world’s largest fast food chains to review and evaluate a food service equipment manufacturer’s claim for damages based upon alleged misappropriation of certain trade secrets related to holding cabinets. The plaintiff’s damage expert’s claim was based on the losses incurred to date—lost profits on lost sales and research and development costs incurred. In addition to assessing the causation between the alleged actions of the defendant and the losses the plaintiff incurred, CRA experts prepared an alternative claim for lost profits on lost sales of holding cabinets.
